they traveled a lot every day or maybe not


on a good day they could travel 15 miles

on a rainy day or a muddy day they wouldn’t travel far only up to 1 mile or maybe if you were lucky just a little farther

but with todays technology we could travel as far as they could get in 6-7 days in one hour with a car
